    Checkout the Spitfire screenies at their site, antenna mast looks a bit like nothing's wrong with it... Might just be the sunglint on the antenna in Marcel's screenshot that plays a trick... ? (we're looking at it partly from the side, not straight at the back..)

    I get that impression from the video as well..

    LOL, good point Jan, have not checked it inSim myselve after this screenshot, will do now.

    PS
    Just checked, the antenna is round and not teardrop shape. Mean the profile at the bottom, for the rest the antenna is correctly in height and side profile so far i can tell.

    Ahh, of course, you have the model, lucky you ! Shoot a screenie of the antenna straight from the back with the light shining on one side. Then we know.

    Really ?? Well, then you can send them the photos without them feeling offended. ;-)

    Issue is noted, and hopefully will be fixed.

    I'm beta testing the MkIX and I have to say the sound is gorgeous. More than that though, the experience of flying around a highly realistic and recognisable English coastline as dusk approaches with the sun glinting off the water and some atmospheric clouds in the sky, is, well. I'm lost for words.

    Excellent, can't wait to hear it.

    I posted this in the AH Spitfire topic, but just in case you're not reading that one...

    If you have a 3D printer, you can now print your own authentic Spitfire control stick, with the throttle, landing gear, and flaps switches coming soon:

    Guys, can confirm the antenna shape is fixed in the latest beta.

    Looking nice!

    However, I've noticed another little mistake.

    That is the outboard fairing for the a second cannon (2 cannons were never used on the MK.IX btw), has been modelled as per the 0.5 inch machine on the 'e' wing, which was mounted inboard on that wing.

    It should of course be hemispherical!

    (1st attached example is from a MK.Vc with hemispherical stub, second from an 'e' wing MK.IX showing the inboard 0.5 inch gun, which is currently how it is on the FIS IX).

    Cheers

    Confused what you are trying the say:
    - First picture is not from a "V", the "V" marks had the "3 outlet system" for the engine.

    Real-life a lot of the Mk IX's have the cannon and the other "stub" on the outside, as predicted on the model:



    If i understand it all between the different marks and wing-types , the Mk IX with wing type C is modeled (also shown in the pictures above):

    Marcel,

    Apologies for any confusion!

    What I was attempting to point out was that whilst the outboard stub on the FlyingIrons MK.IX is there and in the correct place, it is not hemispherical as it should be, as can be seen in the first picture I posted (which actually is of a MK.Vc - AR501), and in those pictures of the MK.IXs that you posted.

    (As you probably know, the 'e' armament wing deleted the 4 x 303 inch machine guns, and had a 0.5 inch machine gun mounted inboard of the cannon, whilst the Hispano MK.II cannons where mounted outboard of the 0.5, and further back, hence the shorter fairing for the cannon and blister further back on the upper wing).

    The reason I posted the pictures of the 'e' wing cannon arrangement was to show how FlyingIrons has appeared to have modelled the outboard stub - i.e. it is not hemispherical but flat, and looks very similar to that of the inboard 0.5 inch gun port of the 'e' wing.

    So basically, it should be hemispherical and not flat as it currently is.

    Hopefully that is a bit clearer!

    Cheers

    I want to get it, but am hoping they might consider a discount for people (like myself), who just bought their X-Plane version (bought it last month). It's a good thing my wife doesn't monitor what I spend. She would go ballistic if she knew what I spent on addons!!! NC

    Typical! I just get Warplanes WW! VR & now this is out :-)
    Like buses, 2 come along at once
    Now I have to work out how much AU$35 is is & hide it from the wife
